Our team is growing! We proudly present our newest team rider, Joshua Emanuel.

Joshua is a water born guy, who was lucky enough to grow up with the ocean on his doorstep. His main passion in life is kitesurfing but he also really loves surfing, skating and being outdoors.

On February 25th 1994, Joshua was born in Port Elizabeth in South Africa. He moved to Durban shortly after he was born and currently he is living in the wind capital of the world, Cape Town.

"Kitesurfing was introduced to me at a very young age. I stopped kiting for just over a year and when I started again I really started to push myself in the sport. After a couple of years I moved to Cape Town to study and focus on my kiting as it was the best place for me to do this. After my studies my full focus went to kiting."

He told us his favourite spot for wave riding is by far Mauritius. For big and loops his perfect spot is Cape Town. Besides good spots, he also wants to share some tips and tricks. Joshua: "Speed and power is everything as well as good technique. But maybe more important: if you want something in life, you really have to put your mind to it and give it your full focus."

His focus point for now is Red Bull King of The Air. He would love to take the win at this event as well as holding his title at Red Bull Megaloop Challenge. But above all he wants to be the first one to reach the 29m mark.

At last we asked him if there is something extra we really need to know about him. His answer: "Not really... 😊 I'm a pretty chilled guy who absolutely loves kiting and travelling and exploring the world. I would love to keep pushing the limits of the sport and hopefully be able to do this for a very long time."

Welcome Joshua! We are stoked to have you on board!
